Wish You Were Here John Lennon

Wish you were here
John Lennon
Knowing that you'd laugh
At how we talked Speke Airport
Into taking your name
But knowing that you would really be proud

Wish you were here
John Lennon
Angry at the social injustice
That goes on in the name of progress
Watching new wheels turn
But being happy that there's progress
Being made in your old town

Wish you were here
John Lennon
Looking down that elegant long nose
Squinting into the sun
Your words still tumble like letters
Through a post box across the universe

Wish you were here
John Lennon
Liverpool loves you more than you can know.
